Help protect against harmful electrical shocks caused by ground faults

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (or GFCIs) are required in parts of the home where electricity could possibly come into contact with water, such as bathrooms, kitchens, patios, and garages. The QO-GFI circuit breakers provide overload and short circuit protection, combined with Class A ground fault protection. Class A denotes a ground fault circuit interrupter that will trip when a fault current to ground is 6mA or more, for people protection. Located in the load center, these breakers provide ground fault protection for circuits with receptacles, as well as for larger loads such as hot tubs and spas. GFI receptacles combine ground fault protection with a plug outlet. These devices can provide protection to items plugged into the outlet as well as protect other plug outlets that have been wired directly from the GFI receptacle.

Help protect against harmful electrical shocks caused by ground faults

GFCIs are required in parts of the home where electricity could possibly come into contact with water, such as bathrooms, kitchens, patios, and garages. GFI circuit breakers combine ground fault protection with the functions of a standard circuit breaker. Located in the load center, these breakers provide ground fault protection for circuits with receptacles, as well as for larger loads such as hot tubs and spas. GFI circuit interrupters provide protection for the entire circuit unlike GFI receptacles that leave the “home run” unprotected.

How do GFCIs work?

GFCIs monitor the circuit 24 hours a day/7 days a week to keep people safe. If current is detected leaking to the ground, the circuit breaker “trips”, removing the energy from the circuit. GFCIs are specially designed to detect circuit issues that traditional fuses or thermal-magnetic circuit breakers can’t.

Square D QO GFCI Circuit Breaker

Square D GFCI circuit breakers are rigorously tested to assure compliance with UL, CSA, and ANSI certifications and National Electrical Code requirements. They are designed for system voltages from 120V up to 480V in single phase and 3 phase applications. All QO circuit breakers are equipped with the exclusive Visi-Trip indicator. If the circuit breaker trips, the handle snaps to a midpoint position between “OFF” and “ON” and a red indicator identifies the tripped breaker. QO circuit breakers keep the Square D brand ahead of the competition and are builders’ and electrical contractors’ first choice in electrical protection.

Improve safety, save space, and save installation time

More than 90% of short circuits are initiated by ground faults (also called earth leakage or residual current). Ground fault protection integrated into the UL 489-listed circuit breaker eliminates the need for external current transformers or add-on modules. Load level ground fault protection reduces the time required to troubleshoot the cause of the ground fault by isolating the load where the ground leakage has occurred. Ground fault push-to-test feature confirms if the internal ground fault circuitry is working
